MoMA P.S.1 has named five finalists competing in the 2017 Young Architects Program (YAP).

Now in it’s 17th year, the competition was founded to offer emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design a temporary, outdoor installation within the walls of the P.S.1 courtyard for MoMA’s annual summer “Warm-Up” series. Architects are challenged to develop creative designs that provide shade, seating and water, while working within guidelines that address environmental issues, including sustainability and recycling.

The 2017 finalists are:

  • Bureau Spectacular: Jimenez Lai

  • Ania Jaworska

  • Office of III: Sean Canty, Ryan Golenberg and Stephanie Lin

  • Jenny E. Sabin

  • SCHAUM/SHIEH: Rosalyne Shieh and Troy Schaum

The winner will be announced in February of next year.

Last year’s winner was Escobedo Soliz Studio for their colorful installation, “Weaving the Courtyard.”

Other previous winners include Andrés Jaque / Office for Political Innovation’s COSMO (2015), The Living / David Benjamin's Hy-Fi (2014), CODA / Caroline O'Donnell’s Party Wall (2013), HWKN’s Wendy (2012), Interboro Parners' Holding Pattern (2011), SO-IL's Pole Dance (2010), MOS' Afterparty (2009) and Work AC’s Public Farm 1 (2008).
